You'll do just as good with a salt block and its a lot healthery than a drug induced product if you need to attract deer, as opposed to hunting them.

Are you talking about a certain type of salt block or one you get from a
cattle feed store?

It is best to get a 25 pound bag of table salt from Sam's or Price Club. Pour a generous amounton a tree stump or log ( maybe 5 to 7 pounds or so). The deer will wear a path to it and tear it up, even chewing away at the stump. Also the rain will make it seep in the wood where it will stay, instead of being washed way into thedirt where they can't hardly get to it.Then freshen it up every few months, knowing that the best time they hit it is between spring and early fall. I put out deer cocaine once and it worked. I even had deer and two bears come over to it and sniff the spot where I put it as I hunted one morning. However,I think salt works good too, withoutthe added cost.

heres something me and my friend uses,and its not as expensive as the big name brands, you can get it at the feed store,co-op. get garden lime and mineral salt, mix them together and pour out, perferably, clay soil or an old stump, sandy soil want hold the minerals long. good luck.

I think deer cocaine is mostly salt with other minerals. It is illegal in some states to hunt over any attractant with salt in it.

I checked my buck grub spots last night and they were worn out. I also put the BG on stumps and see similar results.

I have used a regular saltblock, poured a gallon of apple juice on it. Also use a saltblock and pour liquid deer cain.

Deer cain makes the deer crazy at my camp. They paw and lick huge holes in the ground

LOng how come you can't use it anymore? Yeah I have some pretty good sized holes also, You know the weird thing is there are alot of moles coming up to eatthe buck grub also.

Because the DNR is trying to keep CDW from spreading, at least that was the reason given. The thought is, it keeps deer from converging on the same spot, which will increase saliva transfer from one deer to another. We can no longer put out any minerals or suppliments. Before, we could put it out, just couldn't hunt over it while it was their and for ten days after it was removed. So you could put it out during the offseason several times, and be good to go for hunting season. Not any more.

Trace mineral salt works just as good.
